Interested players can create an account on "Animal Jam" by clicking the Play Now banner on the game's home page and choosing the Create An Animal option. Players can then choose their preferred animal and personalize their choice prior to entering some personal information for the registration process.
Some of the required information in the "Animal Jam" registration form includes the user's birthday, age and gender. After entering this information, the user must also create their login information in the form of a unique user name and a password. "Animal Jam" players must also input a parent's email address, as the game requires additional verification before allowing the player to join the site.
In addition to a free user account, players can also purchase memberships for "Animal Jam." These memberships provide additional benefits for the player, such as the ability to adopt and customize all virtual pets in the game, access to all of the game's accessories and dens, and access to member-only adventures and parties. Non-member accounts are only able to access basic features and benefits on "Animal Jam," such as playing games to earn gems and an advertisement-free experience.
"Animal Jam" works in conjunction with National Geographic for Kids.
